As we look to further improve our tools and contribution experience and as requested by many members of the community, we have fully removed the capability of adding suggested AI translations from various languages by removing the “Fill” button located on the subtitling tool on all channels.
How does this affect contributions and workflows?
No impact on workflows or contributions is expected as users can still translate and work on the episodes as usual.
Will you remove the “Suggestion” line under the text box?
For the time being, we’re not planning on removing the suggestions that will appear on certain shows under the text box. What we hope is that these suggestions will be taken as helpful guides and then further improved by the translator, who will then proofread and add missing context from these suggestions.
The suggestions are usually literal translations and should always be taken as such. They should serve as a guide and not used without fixing grammar, context, syntax and/or continuity errors. Be nice to your team editors! Failing to do so might result in corrective action by Viki.
Feel free to share your feedback or concerns regarding the removal of the Fill button. We’re always looking to improve our community and your feedback goes a long way into making that happen.
Wishing you all Happy Holidays and a blessed New Year!
